There’s much talk on the Internet these days about a cold mouse hand. It’s a chronic condition, there’s little medical knowledge about it, and there are products available to help relieve the cold hand pain. For many years, I sat at a computer formatting images in Photoshop. I owned and operated an ecommerce site and was too busy to actually do something to address the real problem. There were deadlines to meet, work to be completed, and frankly, suffering with the pain of a cold hand was not my top priority.
It wasn’t until after I sold my e commerce site I focused on creating an energy-efficient solution to the cold mouse hand condition. Gathering fabrics, testing the quality, and producing a product became a new job. Within a few months, the Mouse Hand Warmer was patented, trademarked and proto-typed. The Mouse Hand Warmer ™ turned out to be a warm, fleece pocket-style blanket to slip your mousing hand inside to keep it covered and warm.
Although there’s no sound medical advice about why the mouse hand gets cold, it’s common sense to understand exposed body parts tend to get chilled. After hours of exposure, using a computer mouse in the same position, it’s not uncommon for the mousing hand to get cold. This condition becomes chronic for the computer geek who sits for hours using a computer mouse.
Cold mousing hand can be attributed to a number of medical factors like Poor Circulation, Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Raynauds, DeQuervains, Tendonitis or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
Cold mousing hand can be experienced in a variety of settings like Air Conditioned Rooms, Under a Ceiling Fan, Drafty Cubicles, Winter Weather or Cold Offices at home or in a building.
There are a number of products on the market to help relieve the pain caused by a cold mouse hand. The most practical and cost efficient item is the Mouse Hand Warmer. It can be used only when needed and requires no electricity. In today’s energy crisis thats a good thing. Anything that is earth friendly can only be helpful and good.
Your computer mouse is a personal device. We all have a favorite shape and style of computer mouse. We purchase a mouse based on the way it feels in our hand and the way it functions for the type of work we perform. Personally, I use a large Microsoft ergonomic shaped computer mouse. After all the years working with a computer, it’s the best fit for my hand.
Another personal computing device is a mouse pad. The mousepads available today come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. My favorite mouse pad is a hard gaming style mousepad constructed of metal with a slick surface. It measures about 12 x 10 inches and works nicely with my large ergonomic computer mouse.
When designing the Mouse Hand Warmer, I decided to create something that worked with any mouse or mousepad because I didn’t want to give up using my favorite computer accessories. The Mouse Warmer blanket measures about 12 x 12 inches in size and has a non slip surface. Its a large pocket to slip your favorite computer accessories and tools inside. There’s plenty of room inside for movement with your favorite mouse pad and mouse. Sometimes when I’m traveling, I bring just the Mouse Hand Warmer because it can also be used stand-alone as a mousepad. The inside bottom surface is smooth, and the computer mouse functions on top of it without the use of an additional mouse pad. The Mouse Hand Warmer is perfect for any work environment.
